Freedom

One evening as I was having walk I heard someone screaming .i decided to run to the scene to see what was happening.Suddenly the screamers voice was not heard it was as if they someone had closed her mouth .I ran helter skelter and found myself peeping through a window .What I saw was too hard to explain. A house girl was trying to escape from the hands of her employer who wanted to rape her.I went and knocked the door but there was no reply.So I kicked the door because I knew I was supposed to take quick action .I went and took the girl by the hand.I looked at her face and from her look I knew she was still young child of about sixteen .She explained to me that she had ran away from home so that she can be able to be free.I took her to a home there was a woman who took girls like her.
